Two Injured in School Bus Accident on South Dakota Avenue in Washington, DC

Washington, DC -- May 4, 2022, two people sustained injuries due to an accident where a school bus crashed along South Dakota Avenue.

Authorities reported that the crash took place off the intersection of South Dakota Avenue and Decatur Street at around 7:00 a.m. Somehow, a small school bus ended up off-road where it crashed into a utility pole and a tree.

Two adults on the bus were hurt due to the accident. It appears no students were on the bus at the time. Right now, the cause of the crash remains unclear.

It's not clear how exactly this happened, but getting folks the help they need may involve unique challenges. Commercial vehicle wrecks are challenging enough on their own, but crashes involving government vehicles tend to present additional hurdles. Whether it's rules for who is and isn't liable for a typical crash or even time limits far shorter than the usual two year statute of limitations, victims and families must be prepared to overcome the barriers between them and the help they need. Maybe this is a private school bus, or maybe DC is particularly lenient with its rules. In my experience, though, people who prepare for significant hurdles have a better time overcoming them.
